This past weekend, Florida native Anna Keller married the oldest child of The duggar family Josh, expanding their family count to twenty. The couple met at a home-schoolers conference in 2006 and Josh said that it was love at first sight. He spent the next two years courting Anna. They had chaperoned visits as well as keeping in touch by phone.
“We wanted proof that, yes, we did exactly what we said we would,” Duggar said. “We want to encourage other young people to wait for the right timing.”
Their kiss at the altar was their first and the couple are now talking about beginning their own family and don’t care how large it is. “Not everyone is blessed with being able to have children,” Keller, who is one of eight kids, said. “If the Lord chooses to bless us with a child, it wouldn’t matter if it was one, two or a bunch.”
Josh’s family are best known for the children. His mother is pregnant for her eighteenth child that will be born in January 2009 and the familynow has their own new reality show, 17 Kids and Counting, that premiered Monday on TLC.
